COVID-19 has brought new safety concerns for businesses trying to provide a safe workplace for their staff.  Join Alan Yamamoto, HIOSH Consulting & Training Program Manager, as he explains employers’ safety obligations in light of COVID-19 including:

  • The applicability of HIOSH’s general duty clause;
  • The employers’ duty to assess hazards in the workplace (Job Hazard Assessment);
  • Updating the written safety and health program to include policies and procedures related to COVID-19;
  • Training related to COVID-19;
  • Whether face coverings, face shields, and gloves are considered personal protective equipment (PPE) and whether employers must provide such equipment to staff;
  • Required and voluntary use of N95 filtering facepieces, and their requirements;
  • Sanitizers and the Hazard Communication Standard; and
  • What COVID-19 resources are available to you.
